About Me

My name is Christine Rödder, I was born on december, 22nd in 1985 in the beautiful area of the Westerwald. Because I come from a farm, ever since the beginning of my life I was in contact with animals. When I was an infant we had a german shepherd called Basso. After his death  we had not had any other dogs for several years. But in 1995 my biggest wish came true and we got a puppy: Nicki which was a mixture between 3/4 appenzell mountain dog and 1/4 shepherd. She only had a short life because  she died within only a couple of months on the consequences of a car accident.

Because we were so used to a dog again, we looked around for a new family member, that is when our first pure-bred bernese mountain dog Ronja came to us. But she did not stay alone very long…and so I grew up with our bernese mountain dogs :)!

Ever since, I was involved in caring and taining of our dogs and when I started my studies for a certified agricultural engineer (main subject animal science) I had the wish to have an own dog. I was looking for a special dog of small size but still a “real” dog, that is  agile, intelligent, not overbred and with no specific diseases.

 

In the internet I found the breed “papillon” and  since then I am infected with this “virus” and would not want to miss one of my sweeties :)!
